The circular temple that commemorates Leibniz was built from 1787 to 1790. The memorial originally and the bust of the scholar stood on today’s Waterlooplatz. To make way for a new urban planning layout, the massive sandstone building with twelve columns was moved to its present day locationin the Georgengarten in 1935/1936. A copy of a bust of Leibniz was placed in the temple on 1 July 2010. The temple is an attractive “point de vue”, a subject for photographs, and a favourite meeting place for people on outings, and romantic couples.
